Salustiano uses only his first name as an artistic name,   no surname. It is as if he gets rid of the accessories and keeps a pure, more immediate concept, at the same time more durable and suggestive.

Just like in a painting: “I have never been interested in   the “subject”, there isn’t anything like a narrative discourse behind my work. My paintings are images that do not intend to tell ‘something’, but they intend to provoke different sensations in the viewer. Or not even   that, because a sensation can be too obvious and ephemeral. I am looking for something more primitive, deeper inside, more delicate and long-lasting.

I intend to cause certain state in the viewer’s soul. It is an intellectual work, very assessed, but always pursuing an emotional goal. In this sense, my painting works like abstract painting or abstract music”.
